Stride into the School Year, Presented by Implus
September 10-October 14
When kids hit the books, #motherrunners hit the pavement.
Stride into the School Year, Presented by Implus, is five weeks of unique, fun workouts that blend running and strength training. (Read: You rarely repeat a workout.) The plan has you sweating five days a week, with an option for a sixth day of a yoga session if your schedule allows.
This five-week Challenge is all about forward motion, fitness, accountability and community, not about training for a specific race. The workouts are one-size-fits-all, whether you’re a walker, run/walker, or runner, and whether you’re just starting to run, coming back to it after a decade off, or just need a little push to get you jump started again.
The shortest workout is 20 minutes, the longest is 40-90 minutes (one longer run on the weekend), with most sessions clocking in around 30 minutes.
You will receive a PDF of the training plan, and every morning (bright and early!) the daily workout will be posted on the private Facebook page. Below are two sample weeks; the footnotes make a little hard to decode, but it’s a good example of the time commitments. (And since when does a running program include a science lab and library visit? Promise: It’s gonna be fun!)
There are no waves for Stride into the School Year: the program begins on September 10 and ends on October 14.
